The Gunflint Trail Lifestyle

For those of you that haven’t yet experienced a trip to the boundary waters or better yet, lived in an isolated area, the lifestyle is a bit different.  Below are some questions that we’re asking to determine how you might handle this lifestyle change for the summer.  And they’re questions that you’ll need to ask yourself and be honest about before considering a canoe outfitter position.

What are some of your hobbies?
Are you an independent person?
Are you active in outdoor activities?  Ex: camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking,
biking, running?
Will you be driving your own car?  If not, what are your transportation
plans for arriving and departing?
Can you live without cable television, movie
theater, shopping mall, etc? We do have high-speed WiFi in the staff quarters that will allow you to keep in touch with family and friends as desired, as well as a television that is capable of playing DVD movies.
Can you see yourself interacting with the same 10
people for 4 months and be open to personality differences?

Finally

What, in your opinion, makes you believe you’ll be the
best candidate for this canoe outfitter position? How did you hear about us?
